The Graves 601 Minneapolis has the reputation of being one of the best if the best hotel in all of the Twin Cities. If built expect another top of the line lux hotel for chicago.

^Like you mentioned:

A proposed Residential-Business Planned Development Application submitted by Fairbanks Development Associates, L.L.C. for the property generally located at 530-548 North Fairbanks Court. The applicant proposes to construct a 58-story mixed-use building containing approximately 191 hotel rooms, 176 dwelling units, ground-floor retail, and 318 off-street parking spaces. (42nd Ward)

Judging by that rendering and knowledge of the site it seems the tower is quite slender and would not need the small wester portion that Diggity Dogs occupies? I always hate to see these small joints that add character to this city get axed, too bad they can't build over and around it!

Man, is today our lucky day for towers growing taller? What other good news could we possibly hear?

So, is does this explain the unusual height figures we had before, or does it mean that this building actually might get taller too?

Honte has a point, I didn't notice that the floor count went up by 8! That could be enough (assuming they don't just shrink the avg. floor height) to push this one (including that pole on top) over 800'!

Yeah if they don't change the floor heights and assuming the original floor count was acccurate ----it was 50 right -- then this guy would be about 870ft tall

my gut say thought that the earlier floor count was in error and height will remain

yes, that is my gut inclination as well. that is why i changed the floor count in the title of this thread, but left the height figure alone.

Mandarin Oriental is shrinking and this one is growing... good news for SCB. Pretty soon, they'll only have to design one building and just call it a twin-tower project.

Why does Graves describe 220 hotel rooms and 300 condos, and the plan commission specs are 191 and 176?

Counting floors on the elevation on page 1, it certainly appears that the floor count always has been above 50. So, I think you made the right move.

Nice pics Bvic. One question though, the north face looks pretty narrow compared to the lot, is that accurate, or are they working around the hot dog stand? (probably wishful thinking)

the lot will be totally cleared, so if anyone on this forum is partial to that particular hotdog stand, I suggest you get a camera, cause they'll last longer.
